Photography is the science, art and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material. Photography is one of the new media forms that changes perception and changes the structure of society.
The Photography section of the Guernsey Eisteddfod is included in the exhibition and all images are welcome – from nature to portraits and from architecture to pictorial. There is no selection process thereby allowing it be a glorious showcase of images of Guernsey, its people and its talent.
Whether photography is your hobby or your profession, you can enter the Photography section of the Eisteddfod. Certificates are provided and a trophy for each photographic class is provided providing both a goal for the entrant and continuous encouragement for development in future years.
The judge (or adjudicator) of the Photography section is sourced from off-island and is highly qualified in his or her field of photographic excellence. A photographic illustrated talk by the visiting judge, incorporating his or her own photographic images, provides a first-hand experience and inspiration of another’s journey to photographic excellence.
Each entry to the Photography section will receive a comment from the judge; written for those printed photographs and verbal for those that are projected digital images.
